I use hell to fervently explain why to be catholic
I have always had a hard time following my religion. I have always wanted to do what i want. The only thing stopping me is my fear of hell and how it's irreversible. Don't try to turn me into an athiest or convince me the devil doesn't exist. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. This is causing so many people to go to hell.
If someone is doing a mortal sin, especially when it's posted online, I will say something about hell and how that is where they are going if they continue. I would never say this to someone I know, just strangers online. I saw a post today about students at the college i went to opposing the overturning of roe vs wade. This greatly pissed me off and I commented using my fake account. I still believe these feelings. I i was walking by these protesting women, I may have been bold enough to say "good luck in hell!" If you commit mortal is and are not sorry, then that is where you're going. It will happen immediately after death. It's wrong to kill unborn babies.
I must admit that if hell was not an object, I would be doing what I want. To be honest, I don't like seeing other people having their sinful fun since i'm too scared to do it. I don't want people to have more pleasurable lives than me. I know it's an aggressive tactic, but I feel the need to express myself. Following God or not and going to heaven or hell is what our entire existence is all about. I fear God way more than I love him, but I'm working on that. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. I think that I will be able to be good enough to get into heaven as long as I don't do anything mortally wrong, such as: homosexual acts, killing someone, disregarding God, stopping going to church ect.
If I have to work this hard at salvation, then EVERYONE has to!!! I'm not going to bust my ass while someone is having their sinful pleasures if we both get into heaven. Not everyone is going to heaven. People aren't committing suicide and getting a free ride into heaven. I just hate that I can't do what I want. God is real and I will follow him no matter what I feel like doing.
